Seeking residents located by address in London about 1900 #unitedkingdom


Stephen Denker
 

Are there any records such as London city directories where I can search
residents by street address for the years 1895-1905? I'm especially
interested in who lived at 45 Morgan St. in 1899. My grandfather, upon
arrival at the Poor Jew's Temporary Shelter in London, said he was going to
the above address.

He was listed in the London 1901 census at 14 Underwood St. living with his
sister, her husband, her child and 2 other boarders. I want to find out who
was he going to on Morgan St.

Thanks

Yes, Kelly's Directory which were annually published and are organised by
London district.

I recently went to a local history library and looked up my own family.

The entries are ordered by the order of the houses in the street.

Unless you can get someone to go there you would need to contact the Tower
Hamlets History Library - other libraries such as the British Library would
have it.

The addresses in the PJTS are suspect - many families seem to be destined to
same address
- maybe a "hostel" set up by the shipping agents
